Web2Touch 2016: Evolution and Security of Collaborative Web Knowledge

Conference Track @ 25th IEEE WETICE Conference
June 13-16, 2016 - Paris, France

** NEW **
Paper submission deadline EXTENDED TO ** February 29, 2016 **


The increase of Web capabilities leads to a deep qualitative change in the
nature of cooperative activities. Nowadays, many activities are dynamic and
take place in real time. Web practitioners and applications, exploit, in
rapidly varying ways, the richness of the Web to support users’ multifaceted
activities. This causes dynamic changes in content, context, methods, meaning,
and relationships to other pieces of knowledge, which affect the security and
reliability of collaborations.

The track theme of this year explores how to share knowledge, views, facts,
and opinions in a highly dynamic and secure Web-based environment.
Coordinated, trusted, and secure sharing of heterogeneous information is an
urgent topic in the Web research agenda. This creates the need for methods and
tools to structure information sharing under correct conditions, such as
preserving privacy and ensuring that distributed data and processes are
consistently maintained in an evolving environment. Studies on knowledge
engineering and artificial intelligence have proposed various Knowledge
Organization Systems (KOS) (e.g. thesauri, ontologies, taxonomies, etc.),
which play a crucial role in information recovery, disambiguation and
identification on the Web. Reasoning techniques can also be applied, leading
to a better decision or an awareness of events.

We expect to discuss new techniques, including those deriving from hot
orthogonal fields such as Social Networks, Big Data Management, Context
Awareness and Crowdsourcing, to assess and organize knowledge through the Web
in face of the challenges imposed by its dynamic and rapid evolution. We also
expect to have discussions on the advantages and limitations of these
reference models, and on how security can be introduced in these models.

Web2Touch is an open forum for studies in multiple application domains
including, for example, eScience, eHealth, eGovernment, eLearning, smart
cooperative fruition in Smart Cities and Smart Companies, entertainment, and
collaborative systems in general.

Best papers from Web2Touch were published at International Journal of Web
Portals 2011 and 2013, Concurrency and Computation 2013, Collaborative
Enterprise 2013, and Future Generation Computer Systems 2016 special issue,
vol. 54, January 2016.

Include but are not limited to:
- Ontology engineering, reuse and integration
- Knowledge creation, management, maintenance, and validation
- Content-based security, security on cooperative Web, Cyber Crimes on the
Web, Legal Aspects
- Semantic sharing and interoperability of heterogeneous data, including (big)
web data, linked open data, crowdsourced data, social data
- Applications, evaluations and experiences in semantic web support for
collaborative work and business
- Collaborative semantic web in interdisciplinary applications such as
eScience, eHealth, eGov, eLearning and education, entertainment
